Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Chevrolet Silverado 3500

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

My low fuel light is on. I have replaced the fuel pump in the front tank. I have a full tank in the rear tank and 1/2 full in the front tank. When I first start the cold engine the Gage goes up then down to E and the light comes on. I know It's not the fuel pump. Any idea whats wrong. AL
The fuel level showed it had more fuel or some times less. the truck would turn off while running. Took it to the dealer several times for the same reason. Until they finally got it repaired.
GAGE GOES TO ABOVE FULL WHEN KEY IS TURNED THAN DROPS BELOW EMPTY WITH A FULL TANK
